Smile Desserts from your childhood

I recently visited Rice Creamery at that new Citywalk development in Jumeirah it got me thinking about puddings when I was a kid. Did you prefer rice pudding hot or cold? always hot in our house. Do you remember having a vienetta on a sunday or an arctic roll! What was your favourite pudding when growing up?

I had a whole facebook conversation about Rice pudding only last week having found it for sale here (The proper ambrosia one)

Hot or Cold is fine but if its hot you must add Jam and if its cold you must eat from the tin.

Also bought an arctic roll and realised that they are actually shit.

We have angel delight fairly regularly here...

My favourites:

Creme Caramel
Chocolate Mousse
Granny's Kissing Trifle (for the dirty sloppy kissing noise it makes)
